Here's the steps I took (this is for a clean Ubuntu 6.06 "Dapper"
1). Grab the OMSA software:
# wget -c
2). Install some prerequisites (you'll need the universe repo):
# apt-get install openipmi ipmitool libxml2 libstdc++5 gcc-3.3-base
3). Install OMSA:
# dpkg -i dellomsa_5.1.0-5_i386.deb
4). Add this to the end of line 66 (the kernel defaults line) of
4a). Update Grub
5). Modify /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv, add these lines starting at line 49:
# -- This script, in its default form, didn't check for the existence of
# -- the directory /var/lock/subsys, which it needs to properly
# -- This small little addition will fix that.
if [ ! -d /var/lock/subsys ]; then
chmod 0755 /var/lock/subsys
6). Modify /etc/snmpd/snmpd.conf (this is for remote monitoring, I don't
think the web interface needs this) adding this line:
7). Make certain the impi module loads properly, add this to the end of
options ipmi_si type="kcs" ports="0xca8" regspacings="4"
8). Make certain that the web interface starts:
# update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults
After all of that, I restarted the machine (it was easier than
restarting the 5 or 6 individual services - I'm lazy) and I was up and
YMMV, this was one PE2850 running Dapper 6.06. I hope this helps.
